Conservation and Restoration

Lower House, TU Dublin Grangegorman, Dublin 7

Project: Lower House, TU Dublin Grangegorman, Dublin 7
Client: Grangegorman Development Agency
Value: €14m
Project Status: Complete
BMP Role: On this project, we provided full Quantity Surveying Services
Architect: Fitzgerald Kavanagh & Partners (FKP Architects)
Description: Substantial Completion was reached in January 2021 on the construction works to the Lower House. BMP were appointed as part of a very experienced conservation and restoration Design Team, headed up by Fitzgerald Kavanagh & Partners Architects, by the Grangegorman Development Agency to carry out the works within the Grangegorman Campus of the Technology University Dublin.

This ambitious project has restored the building and brought it into use once again. The Lower House will form an important part of the new University campus, offering a range of services for the staff and student body. There will be a large catering facility and coffee shop while the building will also provide Student Union areas and facilities along with a dance studio and some indoor sports areas. There will also be a number of rooms for the Conservatory of Music and Drama. It will be linked by way of a landscaped walkway to the East Quad.

This 4,000sq.m. refurbishment project which also includes over 400sq.m. of new extensions has been extremely challenging due to the exposed nature of the structure, the significant structural works required, the extremely tight timeframe set out by the Client and all of this carried out on a protected structure in the middle of a global pandemic.
